I'm still under the impression of two recent conversations in Welsh.
One was with @aran, who made me think twice about my glib pronouncement that "I don't know why I learn languages since I don't actually enjoy talking to people" after noting that I did seem to be enjoying myself with him, unless I was faking something.
The other was with @seren, who not only paid me a compliment on how much my Welsh had progressed since the last time she had spoken to me (quite a while ago, admittedly). Perhaps a more important thing only struck me after our conversation was over -- that I had enjoyed speaking to her quite a lot.
I think what I got from both of those conversations was that I may not enjoy speaking a language for the purpose of speaking a language (or for the purpose of practising) -- but I enjoy speaking to friends about things I find interesting, even if those conversations happen to take place in a foreign language.
Meaning that conversations become immensely more enjoyable if I approach them not as I want to find somebody to practise Welsh with but I would like to find somebody that I can have an enjoyable conversation with (bonus points if that conversation happens to be in Welsh.
Both of those recent conversations fitted that, though I hadn't sought them out specifically. Thank you to both of you, for not just speaking about Welsh and learning Welsh, or learner conversation such as "how many sisters do you have and what's the weather like outside". But for an interesting conversation that just happened to be in Welsh.
